Re: IJK-egopad the joypad for Oric by [raxiss]

I was wondering about something: All these Joysticks are using DB9 connectors, we need 2 pins for +5v and ground, 4 pins for the for directions, so why do we have only one fire button? We have two additional pins, can't they be used to handle some additional fire button, or some select/menu/pause? ...

Re: Atmos ROM

I never tryed this but normally, if the Rom is deactivated by Erebus, the computer can run without the Oric Rom chip memory.

On the db9 connector, pins 1 2 3 4 6 8 are used for directions and fire as logical signals, according to the Atari standard, Oric interfaces and games are compatible. The other terminals are analog input which send a progressive signal to move a brick breaker racket or a camera, the Oric has no anal...

Re: Atmos ROM

@Protek: Erebus needs to desactivate the internal rom with the /ROMDIS pin to run with the external one, I suppose that the drive do the same to use its bootstrap program, if Erebus runs correctly, the driver will do the same. @Iss: Thanks for the test, its a good new for the Oric computers with a m...

Re: IJK-egopad the joypad for Oric by [raxiss]

I think that it will work with the sound disturbed. But if one of the Oric computer uses a 7805 regulator and the both use the same 9v power supply, it could happens a little smoke... :mrgreen:

Re: The Hobbit: Disk, Erebus,...

I modified the THEM game, the first program that calculated from address #00 does it from #80. It works with Erebus.

Re: ORIC SDCARD

You can try the Erebus without the SDcard module. Start the Oric and type CLOAD"" , you'll see "Memory Error," which means Erebus works. I tried the EEProm Winbond W27c512 and there are defects sometimes. With a UVProm, it's always worked.

I use the special uv lamp for memory erasure, I need two exposures of 20 minutes to have a "blanking ok".

@ Jbperin
I just retrieved the original tape file, removed the preface and backed up the second part by merging the BASIC program and MC program with a CSAVE "xx",AUTO.

@Xahmol
Bedankt. ;)
